RSF (Reporters without Borders) reported this just before Sarawak’s state elections… more like slamming the Government’s abuse of Internet freedom.
Malaysiakini (nice to be accessible again by the way) highlighted today the Freedom House which is supported by the United Nations Democracy Fund (UNDEF), reported Malaysia as “partly free” in terms of Internet freedom.
Geez…. if they were impressed with the use of Internet, wait til they see how Jibby’s Apco team has brilliantly planned the use of media, courts and police.
RPK’s dance with TV3 wasn’t a tat bit too coincidential in terms of timing and content??
The “omega watch” was such a HOT ITEM during Sarawak campaign and now “not an issue, as we are only investigating the screening not the people involved” twist by the PDRM…. common! So now they will convict the Datuk T trio for porn and say it’s not Anwar after all??? brilliant no???
Since when has the script writers been so good? APCO deserves the big PMO’s $$ allocation.
The International recognition should include screenplay award at Cannes or something… but the cinematography and acting still cannot make it lah.
On one hand, Najib talks about “transform”, 1Malaysia, freedom, equality… even organising makan with his online friends from tweeter and facebook.
All very well packaged and nice to see/hear/read. Well done, Apco!
BUT on the other hand.. when things are not going well… like the Sarawak Show that Najib is failing badly to stage – screw the progressiveness mask. It’s now same old story – bring out the iron fist.
In the past week… the following media / blogs have been down. Most of them attacked by DDOS.
- Sarawak Report. Now accesible on a blog here.
- Rado Free Sarawak. Not accesible.
- Malaysiakini. Now accesible at malaysiakinicom.wordpress.com and www.facebook.com/malaysiakini
- Dayak Baru Blog. Not accesible
- Anil Netto – supposedly “under attack” too but still accessible.
- Harakah Daily – supposedly “under attack” too but still accessible.
- Haris Ibrahim – People’s Parliament, President of MCLM
- Dr Wong Chin Huat – Political scientist and a leader of Bersih 2.0
- Sivarasa – Member of Parliament
- Steven Ng (Native Customary Rights (NCR) land activist)
-  Ambiga Sreenevasan – former Malaysian Bar Council Chairperson and current chairperson of Bersih 2.0
- How about the use of TV3 to start a Media spin on RPK?
- What about a Mainstream Media blackout on opposition’s successful rallies?
- The little things about Cheating agaisnt a free and fair election.
So… in the name of Power and Fear of losing… the rules of a democracy, free and fair elections, human rights, freedom of information – all out of the window.
How Najib? is this what 1Malaysia is about?
I think despite of the above… People Power will win 16 April. History will be made.
Gees that was quick!! Cabinet ordered MCMC to lift the ban/block (whatever u wanna call it) on Malaysia Today… yesterday. That must have made our dear Botak feel as stupid as he looks after his statements on the ban…
So today he whacks 3 printed media with “show cause” letters – English daily theSun, Chinese daily Sin Chew Daily and opposition PKR’s party organ Suara Keadilan……
Access MT thru
No internet censorship my ass…..
Not only should MCMC be hung for the blatant abuse of rights… they should be shot for being plain stupid!!
– is this gonna stop internet users from accessing info?
– can this really achieve the shut-down of MT?
– most imprtantly, if this is a political motivated move… it is now REALLY winning the voters back, uh??
check out Minister of FrothMouth’s statement too….
Information Minister Shabery Cheek said MCMC must have its reasons for blocking Malaysia Today.
“I am aware of the issue but it is not under my jurisdiction,” he said.
Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Mohd Nazri Abdul Aziz said sensitive issues should be discussed within the perimeters of law.
If need be, he added, they should be done behind closed doors.
Citing the recent Bar Council forum on ‘Conversion to Islam’ as an example, the minister said it was ‘stupid and foolish’ as the open dialogue bothered people’s emotions.
He then added that the Bar Council is unable to understand the feelings of Muslims as they are not Muslims. (What The Fuck!?!?!?! Can some Malay lawyer brothers or sisters pleeeease spit on him)
damn….it’s getting tougher & tougher to pick quote of d day these days…. just UMNO buggers alone fill up top 10…
